I started taking photos of my own button collection, wanting to show off what I had seeing as how I assemble buttons now. But then I realized how much larger my boyfriend’s button collection was. It totally dwarfed my collection. I’ll have to do something about that in the near future.
Since his collection was much bigger, I took a photo of one section of it and an idea came to me. While some collectors have ways of using the button as decorative pieces, what else can be done with them? Sure, you could do all the conventional ways of pinning them to your clothes, back packs and messenger bags, purse straps, hats…
And if you’re someone who doesn’t want to put holes in all those things?
Why not make them into a decorative wall piece?
This is precisely what my boyfriend did with part of his button collection. Take a look!
You can make one of these yourself to use for posting your buttons on the wall. Either use a board of some sort or, as I would do, a sheet of plastic canvas, and attach a sheet of curdory fabric. I recommend curdory because it’s pretty strong and also easy to find at fabric stores. Then on the back, attach a string (either a fishing line or floss string from the craft store) so that you can hang it up on the wall.
There you have it! An easy way to make your button collection easily visible!
